If you don't mind me asking, what did your personal statement touch on?

@katerd18 Congratulations!! Did you receive any confirmation that TRU got all your documents before you got in?

 

Hi @driftcompatible - thank you! I received my offer before my reference letters had been sent which surprised me. I am assuming they received my transcripts but I did not receive notification that any documents had been received.

Hey, I think you can accept the offer and then withdraw if you get into somewhere else. The downside would be that you lose your deposit 

How much is the deposit?

I played on several intramural sports teams and was an executive member of the Social Justice club. I was part of a research delegation to central America and did a full year academic exchange in third year where I played for the Unis rugby and soccer teams. I've been living abroad since 2013, taught English for two and have been backpacking since so not a terrible amount of professional work experience.:)

Thanks!

 

I'm not quite sure how my softs rank in comparison to others. I'm in my last year of undergrad but I've worked part-time throughout university as a teaching assistant. For ECs I'm a long-term volunteer at two organizations, have been in several university clubs, and am highly active in intramural sports. My letters of reference were fairly strong (I think) - both academic, one from the prof I work for.

Congratulations! TRU apparently looks towards L3/L90, would you mind sharing your GPA there? I would also appreciate EC info if you're willing. :)
